The Opera House does not have any steps at the entrance. Once inside the venue there are three levels with two steps between each. A ramp is available for those that need to move between the second and third levels, allowing optimal visibility of the stage from the second level. Bathrooms will be gender neutral for this event. There is a single accessible bathroom stall with transfer bars on the main floor, with remaining bathrooms in the basement.
Venus Fest takes place on the traditional Indigenous territory of the Huron-Wendat, Haudenosaunee, and most recently, the territory of the Mississaugas of the New Credit.
Venus Fest does not tolerate any form of homophobia, racism, sexism, transphobia, ableism, ageism, sexual harassment, assault, discrimination, or violence. Any audience members suspected of the above will have the opportunity of one conversation on how their behaviour is harmful. Should they continue, audience members will be removed.
Instigators of sexual assault or violence will be removed without warning.
Venus Fest staff and volunteers have received safer space training with the Dandelion Initiative to better support our community. Please seek them out at the door or in the crowd if you need support or someone to talk to.
Venus Fest is made possible through the generous support of
Toronto Arts Council
